Comics from Tracy

In our film "Tracy" we had a scene featuring one of the characters secret comic book collection. We created over 30 original comic book covers, most of which go completely unnoticed in the 3 to 4 minute scene. For the next few months I'll post one a week so that they can finally get their due.

This one was done by Tracy himself, Brian Fee. Brian lovingly crafted this to evoke the feeling of the old horror comics of the 60's. It's also based on a novelty Halloween severed head Brian bought a few years back called "Worm Food". He bought the head with the hopes of spending his weekends repainting it to look more realistic, but like most refurbishing projects, worm food still sits half finished, and forgotten, like so many bondo covered cars, and untended gardens.
